Museum visiting is serious work and after a couple of hours at the marvellous Spessart Museum housed in the equally marvellous Schloß Zu Lohr (possible house of Snow White?), Mr. P was fainting of hunger with a hankering for something Franconian!
A tip from the ever helpful museum receptionist – who rang around Lohr to get us lunch for 3pm (lunch finishes at 2pm, beware), saw us partaking in a sumptuous repast at the Kuferstube Gasthof - home of the famed WHITE asparagus. White asparagus is harvested in Germany between April and June 24th of each year. It is traditionally served with hollandaise sauce and the Kuferstube serves it many different delicious ways. Although its medicinal properties can have it acting as a diuretic and strengthening blood vessels, and its high fibre content can act as a laxative too, it’s rather bland in taste. Not too exciting in Mr. P’s opinion. However, the perfectly presented combination above with young, white local wine was more than heavenly!
